While cinemas are closed, the team discuss films available to view at home on streaming services or via online home rental.

This week we welcomed back show stalwart Cerise Howard to guest co-host, and for the first part of the show we were joined by students Amelia Leonard and Jaie McGuiness from RMIT University's Festival Experience studio to tell us all about the New Normal International Film Festival running 4-6 June.

For Primal Screen's third director spotlight, the team marked National Reconciliation Week by revisiting two films from Australian filmmaker and Kaytetye man Warwick Thornton.

SAMSON & DELILAH (Warwick Thornton, 2009)

SWEET COUNTRY (Warwick Thornton, 2017)

For a sneak preview of all the films we'll be featuring in next week's show, follow us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.
